Some weeks ago, I was priveleged to be asked to chair a session at the South Asian Literature Festival launching a new biography of Sonia Gandhi.
The book has been written by our own dear Freeman, Rani Singh, whom many of you will remember as an actress in East Enders, but who is now a very distinguished journalist and commentator on Indian affairs. In preparation for the launch I read the book in three days; not a difficult task as it is very well written and a fascinating and moving story. I strongly recommend it to you. You can download a press release about the book from Palgrave Macmillan, the publisher, by clicking here or order a copy from Amazon by clicking here.
Rani came into the Hall yesterday and very kindly presented the Company with a copy of her book for our Library. Here is a photo of her presenting it to me in the Court Room.
Now that the book is finished, Rani is looking for a new project to work on, so if any other members out there can think of a suitable research or journalism projectfor her to work on, please get in touch with Rani by email.
